Who is Nandita, you ask?
Nandita Das! Das who!
Sorry, I had to.. Forgive me.
As a company that has its roots in South Asia and lovers of all amazing women out there, we thought it time we put a little spotlight on this Indian a-lister, actress and director. But Ms. Das is much more than just a filmstar, acting in over 40 feature films.. She has her Masters in Social Work from the University of Delhi, and has worked in the areas of children's rights and in putting an end to violence against women.
In 2014, she was selected out of 400 candidates as one of 16 Yale World Fellows as emerging global leaders.
She also supported a campaign against discrimination based on skin colour in India, Dark is Beautiful. We think that's just beautiful, and Nandita is as beautiful as they come!
And today just happens to be her 49th birthday! So, from Jordan to India, the team here at Nesaa just wants to send many warm and fuzzy thoughts your way, dear Nandita. Here's to you and yours on your special day!
Lots of love,
